the pictures as they occur. we'll talk to the weather channel's jim cantore down in lower manhattan where there's a lot going on with the high storm surge expected to rise and a crane has toppled in midtown manhattan because of all this wind. this is "hardball," live coverage of hurricane sandy. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." hurricane sandy will make landfall in a few hours and while millions along the east coast have yet to see the wors , this storm has to offer, residents are already getting a taste of sandy's wrath, if you will. 375,000 residents were ordered to evacuate from new york city in advance of hurricane sandy's rough winds and high water. the weather channel's jim cantore is with us tonight from battery park, that's in lower manhattan at the very bottom. jim, i see the rough seas out there. this doesn't make any sense to me historically. i grew up in a country, philadelphia, where you had a certain number of snows every winter which were normal. you had your hurricane season around august/september and it was down south. now what is this? we're not gett
here on the trail, fred. >> all right, thank you so much from milwaukee, wisconsin. and jim acosta is with the romney campaign, which is getting ready for a rally in dubuque, iowa, after a morning stop in new hampshire. we'll have a report from jim in just a few minutes. >>> now let's get the latest on recovery. five days after superstorm sandy, new york governor andrew cuomo said temporary fuel trucks will be deployed around the new york city area to alleviate the gas shortages. drivers will be able to fill up directly from the tankers. new yorkers can also get around the city a little easier now as well. >> 80% of the subway service has been restored. that is under literally, under one week, 80% of the subway service has been restored from what was horrendous damage. >> across the river in new jersey, there is gas rationing in 12 counties in an effort to cut don on wait times there. people have been waiting there in long lines for hours to gas up cars and get fuel for their generators. >> our jim clancy is in long beach, new jersey, which is on the jersey shore. it's very windy,
democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
evacuated. jim axelrod has more from lower manhattan. >> reporter: good morning. new yorkers pride themselves on being intrepid. and right now we still have some people walking along the wall here in lower manhattan. in a couple of hours if they're here, we'll have to look for another adjective other than intrepid. the big worry here is that the surge of water could be as high as 11, 12 feet. that would get over the wall, into the subway systems and electrical systems, and that's what the big catastrophic worry is here in lower manhattan. the transit system shut down schools shut down. 375,000 people from the lowest lying areas in new york have been evacuated as the biggest city braces for the impacts of hurricane sandy. charlie? >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> meteorologist from cbs 4 has been watching sandy closely. jeff, this is getting scary based on reports you're pulling in. it sounds like this is getting worse. >> good morning, nor amp good morning, everyone. yeah. this storm is getting a little bit worse in the atlantic now. you see that the core of th
itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campaign events that were scheduled for today. instead of those campaign events, he went to church and the federal emergency agency to check on storm preparations there. now, the very interesting question that comes
jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
sandoval during today's batting practice. it's only going to get colder as the night goes on. manager jim leyland thinks a little home dugout advantage will help the tigers. >> we've got heaters in the dugout for both teams obviously. ours is going to be a little warmer than theirs, but that's all right. we won't tell them that. >> if i'm thinking about how cold it is, it means i'm not thinking about what's going on on the mound. >> the beer is cold. everything is cold. it's great. >>> last night, when doug fister got hit in the head by a grego blanco comeback, remarkably, he stayed in the game, giving up just one run in six innings. >> i talked to him on the plane and i had a nice conversation with him. i'm a little worried about it, because this morning he didn't remember our conversation. no. i'm just kidding. he's gonna be checked out today. >>> the nhl season took a big hit today. the nhl announced they have cancelled all games in november as the owners and players are still at odds about revenue sharing in the league. they will lose an estimated $720 million. >>> it is time for your
rally in new hampshire, and now he is headed the iowa. our national political correspondent jim acosta was there in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: mitt romney has kicked off his swing state blitz in this final weekend of the presidential campaign starting the day in new hampshire and then heading next to iowa and colorado. we're hearing the gop nominee touch on some themes that he's been bringing up quite a bit in the last couple of days, saying he is the candidate of what he calls real change. he's also going through his five-point economic plan to get the country back on track, talking about ideas like cutting the deficit, tapping into domestic energy resources and fixing the nation's public school system. but one thing that he has been trying to zero in on in this final stretch of the campaign, he's been going after the president's mantel, being a post-partisan president. in the words of mitt romney, the president has been what he calls the most partisan. here's what he had to say. >> yesterday, the president said something you might have heard by now that i think surprised
bring them to justice. >> with us now, republican jim imhoff joins us. thank you so much for being on the program. the egyptians arrested one of the purported conspirators of the 9/11 attacks in libya. the turks arrested another one using a false passport. are are the surrounding countries doing the right thing? will that be the way that gets resolved rather than by a military attack? >> yes, it could. but i think what that points to is more evidence in how well planned this is using a lot of people from a lot of different countries. >> geraldo: good point. >> i think that is what i would conclude. you know, the big issue has been, geraldo, now you for, gosh, weeks and weeks, as to whether or not this thing was a coverup by trying to imply this was not well thought out and part of an al-qaeda attack. but i think the evidence when you think a few days ago when they came out with the memos that the state department actually on september 11th cent a notification which went to the situation room in the white house that ansar al-sharro al-s involved in this thing. no reason to go into t
website, c-span.org. jim is in orlando, florida. he's on our line for independents. jim, you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: i'm optimistic after the election. i think that a lot of companies have been holding out hiring this year. i think it all comes back to the money. and when i say the money, a lot of the billionaires, when they see that their taxes are going from 14% to 36%, they're going to do whatever they can to make sure that the president looks bad as far as this year. when you look historically, the first quarter of the year is usually slow. we had a good first quarter. in the second two quarters, jobs have been anemic. i think the last two or three years, we slowly climbed out of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
of serious grid lock. jim axelrod is in lower manhattan. >> reporter: that's a crucial piece of news. 227,000 customers still without power in manhattan, although we are told now by saturday power should be restored fully in new york. now, as for the traffic that we're talking about, the massive traffic situation, city's bridges and tunnels absolutely choked with vehicles. traffic lines stretching for miles. through midnight tonight, police will refuse entry into new york for vehicles less than three passengers. public transportation is helping, although lines for shuttle buses reached three hours yesterday. getting rid of water is the top job here. a group of what's called unwatering experts from the army corps of engineers is here to help and they expect to suck out about 10 million gallons of water. from california, 70 power trucks are being air lifted here to help restore power. but the bottom line, charlie, is the more -- the quicker the power is restored, the sooner congestion will be reduced. charlie, norah? >> jim axle rodriguez, thank you. >>> the cia is fighting back against cha
to a rally this afternoon in the all-important swing state of ohio. our national political correspondent jim acosta joins us now from cleveland with more on what the republican presidential nominee is doing. what's going on, jim? >> reporter: wolf, things are changing by the moment. here with the romney campaign, we can tell you the romney campaign has gone ahead and canceled its events for tonight and tomorrow. he is keeping an event that is happening right around now in iowa -- >> unfortunately we've just lost our connection with jim acosta. we'll reconnect with him. we're watching the political fallout as well from this hurricane disaster that's unfolding. we'll get back to jim acosta. i think we actually have him back right now. jim, are you there? >> reporter: yes, i am, wolf. i don't know how much you heard, but i wanted to reiterate the romney campaign has canceled its events for tonight. it is keeping an event that happened right around now in the state of iowa. but what's interesting that's developed with this campaign is we have not heard definitively where the candidate will be to
're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race in this state is going to come down to independents. whoever wins independents in the words of this romney advisor, that candidate is going to win ohio. now, there's a little bit of spin in that because if you look at recent polling like an abc news/"washington post" poll that came out yesterday, governor romney is doing well among independent voters so it makes sense they would be talking about that advantage right now. at the same time, there are signs that yes, the romney campaign is concerned about this state and talking a little bit about what john king was mentioning a few moments ago about the auto bailout, we heard one of romney's top surrogates, rob portman, defend mitt romney's stance on the
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
